    More proof of fraying ties between Afghan Taliban and PakMil/ISI

    NDS chief insists Mullah Ismail is dead | Afghan Islamic Press

    KABUL: (AIP): The National Directorate of Security (NDS) Chief, Rehmatullah Nabil has said that a key Taliban commander, Muhammad Ismail, and his 25 companions had been killed in Pakistan because they wanted to enter into peace talks with the Afghan government. This he said while addressing the Mesharano Jirga, upper house of Afghanistan’s parliament, on Tuesday (May 01). He maintained the Taliban leader and his companions wanted to hold peace talks with the Afghan government and were on their way to the airport in Quetta, Balochistan, Pakistan. All of them were killed, he added. Recently, some reports said the Afghan Taliban have arrested Mullah Muhammad Ismail and is being interrogated. However, chairman of the Kandahar council of clerics, Mullah Tor Jan, who recently joined the peace drive, said Tuesday he had factual information that Mullah Muhammad Ismail and his companions had been killed in Quetta a week ago.

    Meanwhile, the Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid rejected the reports as baseless. “The Islamic Emirate strongly rejects such propagandas. These are propagandas of the invading enemy and its supporters. The reports that Mullah Muhammad Ismail and his 25 companions were killed in a neighbouring country are baseless rumours. Mullah Muhammad Ismail is alive and enjoying good health,” a press release issued by the Taliban, available with the Afghan Islamic Press (AIP), stated. Mujahid, however, did not say whether Mullah Muhammad Ismail has been held by the Taliban. Recent reports suggest the Taliban have arrested Mullah Muhammad Ismail, a Taliban commander in Ghazni province, because he was holding talks with the Afghan government. A renowned daily newspaper of Pakistan, on behalf of Pakistani officials, on Tuesday rejected the reports that Mullah Muhammad Ismail and his companions have been killed in Pakistan.

    We should look for more articles on this incident before making any conclusions.

    Afghan Security Official Says Senior Taliban Member Killed For Seeking Peace Talks
    The above and the original article say that Mullah Ismail and others were killed in Pakistan, not that they were killed by Pakistanis. Big difference. In fact, nothing so far supports the wording of the title of this thread or this wording added by ejazr:
    Let's be careful.

    Well my comment is certainly speculation. But if you go back 2 yeasr or so, Mullah Barader was arrested by Pakistani Security Forces just as there were hints that he was leading peace talks with Karzai
    Hamid Karzai held secret talks with Mullah Baradar in Afghanistan - Telegraph

    There was again suspicion towards Quetta/Pakistan when the head of the Afghan peace council - Burhanuddin Rabbani was assasinated just after his interesting visit to India a month before his assasination
